He had loads of knowledge, made sure everyone knew exactly what they were doing and took loads of photos for everyone kayaking. Brilliant morning with Riverlife.Tina RobbieTina Robbie ★★★★★ Watching the sunset over the city from the kayak on the river was beautiful. The safety is outstanding and was suitable for all.LeeLee ★★★★★ The Riverlife day kayak adventure 14.02.2024 was fantastic! Alex our guide was outstanding, knowledgeable & well-informed.Our tide time adventure was around past the The Story Bridge and back to Riverlife. The bridge structure was epic to see from water level looking up. Thoroughly enjoyed the paddle on the Brisbane River. Post paddle beverage was good too. Thanks Alex for a great adventure!Pistol PetePistol Pete ★★★★★ Wonderful time abseiling down the rocks 4 times.If not for the stair climb to reach the top would have done it more.Hanka was great as our instructor, she quite literally showed us the ropes.Booked stright in for the twilight kayaking in March.Pete ForgionePete Forgione ★★★★★ I had a very memorable experience kayaking (for the first time) on the Brisbane River with the very friendly crew at Riverside Adventure Center. Our guide (a pox upon me for forgetting his name) was friendly, knowledgeable, and very patient with the less experienced kayakers. I managed quite well once I got going, although the strong river current was a challenge at first. I wanted to do something new on my big adventure to Australia, and this was perfect.Be in relatively good shape, be confident, and don’t dig in too deep with your paddle (I almost tipped myself over with my very first stroke, lol).What a lovely time. You will not regret visiting my new friends at Riverside Adventure Center.ElyssaElyssa ★★★★★ We went abseiling with our lovely instructor Alec.

I will definitely recommend it 👌Nicole NanayakkaraNicole Nanayakkara ★★★★★ Had a kayak tour hosted by Blake which was amazing! Blake was an amazing guide, very funny and took some great photos and videos. Highly recommend the 3pm slot because it’s still relatively sunny with a nice cool breeze so you don’t ever feel too hot or cold. It’s also perfect because the tide changes direction making either your way out or back easier! Great first time kayaking experience!!Ben McKenzieBen McKenzie ★★★★★ My 2 teenage sons & I joined the Riverlife crew for the Fiesta de Kayak twilight experience on 28 December 2023. It was absolutely brilliant. Our instructors Mitch & Blake were articulate, informative & energetic. We loved the experience of seeing Brisbane from a completely different perspective. Gently paddling along the river was sublime. I couldn't recommend the experience highly enough 😃Gideon WarhaftGideon Warhaft ★★★★★ Had an excellent rock climbing morning with Riverview. Our instructor Hanka was excellent and in particular went out of her way for our son to do one additional climb when it meant going over our allotted time. An excellent experience!SUSAN CaveySUSAN Cavey ★★★★★ We went abseiling @ Kangaroo Point cliffs with Riverlife and had an amazing time! Our instructor Mitch was friendly, informative and made our experience safe and fun. We would absolutely go again!js_loader
